Life goal complete

Called two from a distance off on the next property. They were hung up on a fence and small road looking for a way through when two walkers and thier dogs blew it. All went quiet.
We moved further off, waited, and started calling again. Quiet. After about a hour my son is bored. Tell him hang in there. A bit later I see them coming down the other side of the ravine, 100 yards and silent.
We get ready, a few calls gets them gobbling, hes set and ready. The strutter comes in first. We had discussed what tree was too far and which tree to not let them get to. They strut right to the close tree, hes shaking. At 7 yards I whisper take em'. The single shot 20 lays the smack down.
Couldnt be prouder, passed his hunter safety last year at 9 years old, its his 5 hunt this season, and he's had his ups and downs that go with turkey hunting.
My boys first bird.

I came in this world with nothing and thankfully still have most of it left
I'm not lost I'm just scouting
